Cosy atmosphere in a small friendly pub right beside Stirling castle. Staff are fantastic and will go out of their way to be helpful. Food is traditional pub style but serves are huge. You will find cheaper bar meals elsewhere in Stirling, but this is well worth a try.

Took my nephew and hid girlfriend here for a birthday treat. Was lovely. Real roaring fire, lovely interior, friendly staff. Felt right at home. The food was delicious. Well worth a visit. Booking beforehand is a must though if a Friday or weekend evening.

Once again we had a great meal, staff where excellent,food presentation was brilliant. The only problem is that you can't get in without a booking. But saying that it is worth the wait if you can't get in.

Thank George B
